I advise you to look up a little something called "Inflation" and come back to us.


Inflation is irrelevant, ps3/360 have better libraries, better features, competent online, and even about the same spec wise (practically speaking) to wiiU and they are both cheaper, ps3 at 250 and 360 at 200. WiiU isn't worth it plain and simple.

360 for Basic and Premium models are around $300 dollars dude and the PS3is also $300 new

Both Walmart and Gamestop lists them for $300 each, and not many are going to buy the $200 4 gig 360.

$270 250GB 2 games

$280 for 500GB and psn+ ... why don't you back up your claims rather then making up bs?

As for the 4GB 360, what's your point, not many people are going to get it because it's got a puny amount of space, like both the wiiU bundles, might as well add another 50 to the wiiU price for a decent harddrive.

Correction on my previous post. Wii wasn't barebones outside of Japan (it came with Wii Sports), but as others have mentioned, inflation also plays a part as well.

Why not stop cherry picking? There are plently of systems (Better ones at that) for much more. Besides these systems are also cheaper because they are several years older. The PS4 and 720 aren't going to be this cheap.

Besides for $350-400 for the better HDD you pretty much trump the cheaper consoles HDD space.

Price drops never hurt when they're done strategically.

I'm not cherry picking, I'm picking the cheapest ones, same reason I'm comparing them to the 300 wiiU and not the 350 one. Just like consumers always look at the cheapest one first.

Then you are foolish to attempt to compare and older system to a newer system.
